PHYSICS 407 Quantum Mechanics I: S. G. Rajeev

##

**TEXTBOOKS**

There is no required textbook for the course. However most of the material
is covered in the textbook by R. Shankar, at a slightly lower level,
and the book by Sakurai, which is at a slightly higher level than the course.
The best textbook on quantum mechanics remains Volume III of the series
by Landau and Lifshitz which is at a significantly higher level
than the course.
In addition, every professional physicist must study, at some point, the classic *Principles
of Quantum Mechanics* by Dirac.
